Tai Chi in the Park

The day started with beautiful sunny weather and managed to stay like that until 10.15am when the rain and hail stones descended. Not detered I decided to go to the park as arranged for 11am and see if anyone would turn up. I took my Tai Chi magazine that arrived yesterday and with a packed lunch set off. The rain had eased a lot by this point.
I was not to be disappointed and as the sky started to clear and the rain dry up then came more Tai Chi practitioners - another four so we had a small but effective group of five.
Situated between the car park and the cafe, to avoid the soggy grass, we warmed up and performed the 8 step and 24 step routines. We also had a go at the fan and those who hadn't done it before also enjoyed practising opening and closing the fan - there was much laughter at this point.
We finished off with the Eight Treasures Qigong and I think it is safe to say that we all felt a lot better for it. The sun stayed shining and it was lovely to be outdoors with the birds singing.
Keep an eye out for further dates in different parks.
